Bushfires

We have had a few sad days here in Australia....As some of you may have heard around the world, Victoria is having the worst bushfires ever imagined.....Over 107 people are dead and whole towns are completely wiped off the map! All this is happening only 150km or so away from us.




On a lighter note, I have finished the middle of M9, but no photo as yet....Here is some photos of my kids at the Torquay beach last Saturday where we had the hottest day on record. It reached 47c (118f).....This is the day the bushfires started

I was saddened to hear of the death of Brian Naylor. I grew up watching him every night on the evening news :(

I haven't spoken to my sister Kim (in Bendigo), but I spoke to mum & dad this morning, and they were telling me all about what's going on. Such a tragedy.

I loved Torquay beach when I was a kid!

So sad Georgie! I saw the footage on the news.
On another note...love the beach photos of the kids. It is so weird while I am typing here and see our snow covered garden knowing you have those temperatures there.

Georgie, I've been thinking of you and hoping you and your family are all okay. Take care and hugs to you and your sweet family!
